"Le Louvre" Musée du Louvre Tip by tvdm

Musée du Louvre, Paris: 796 reviews and 1,585 photos

 
 

I think this museum is in constant struggle with St Petersburg's Hermitage and NYC's Metropolitan Musuem over which museum is the largest. I think the Louvre has the biggest collection but I could be mistaken. In any case, you definitely need more than one day to get a fair idea of its imposing collection, but if you're only here to see the Mona Lisa and the Venus of Milo, a few hours will do. People like myself can never get enough of such wealth in art, so I've been here quite often and every time I like it better!

Address: 99 rue de Rivoli, 75058 Paris,
Directions: Near Rue de l'Amiral de Coligny.
